The Medical Science Liaison - Board Certification exam (MSL-BC®) is the first-ever board certification for the Medical Science Liaison profession and is an effort to establish industry recognized standards for the MSL profession. The Medical Science Liaison Society is dedicated to the validation, through certification, of a specialized body of knowledge for individuals working as a Medical Science Liaison (or equivalent title) or leading a Medical Science Liaison teamProfessionals working as Medical Science Liaisons (MSL) can demonstrate mastery of specialized knowledge by meeting criteria and passing the examination offered by the Medical Science Liaison Society.


As a result, experience working as a Medical Science Liaison or MSL leader is required of all certification candidates; those aspiring to break into the MSL profession are NOT eligible. All MSLs and MSL leaders, including international applicants outside of the United States, are encouraged to take the examination if qualified. However, be advised that the exam and many references used to develop it are US based and reflective of US regulations as well as global guidance documents. 


Please Note: Although paid membership in the Medical Science Liaison Society is not required, you MUST have an existing or create a new account before you proceed - either guest level (free) or professional. This step is required for two reasons:

  1. To take advantage of the reduced member fee if you are a paid member
  2. To connect with the secure MSL Society Learning Management System  

Specific eligibility requirements include:


  1. Bachelor’s degree or higher from a regionally or nationally accredited educational institution. A copy of the candidate’s highest degree or transcript must be provided at the time of registration.

  2. One (1) year of cumulative experience working full-time as a Medical Science Liaison (or equivalent title) or leading a Medical Science Liaison team.


This certification is NOT intended for sales, marketing, or other non-MSL related functions within a company. All candidates must legally attest that they meet all the above requirements, which are subject to verification.
